Mac OS X MacNN has just published an important news item regarding the future of the Mac OS X version of the VLC mdia player. According to VLC's developers, the Mac version is at risk of being discontinued due to a lack of developers. Update: The VLC developers claim that Apple is working against them: "Apple doesn't want us on the Mac platform and is blocking us a lot, and refuses to explain why."

One thing I will keep going back to VLC for is the fact that it can play DVDs on my Mac even when its from a different region. Short of doing something funky to the optical drive's firmware, if VLC degenerates, what alternative is there?
